There has been huge debate sparked by a two hour documentary "Mermaids: The Body Found" which aired on Animal Planet in May. The program recently re-aired on the Discovery Channel on Sunday, and has caused another huge stir.
"Mermaids: The Body Found" was just a fictional account put together in a documentary format telling the story of a mermaid's body being found. However, many have failed to realize the account was just fictional and immediately believed a real mermaid had been found.
Social networks have been lit up with discussions on the topic and thousands have argued whether mermaids are real or not.
